It represents a commitment to principles. In that sense, a certain degree of leadership is dormant in every individual. The challenge comes when one has to nurture it.   A true leader—whether political, religious, professional, motivational or social—has many challenges to face. The capacity to express one’s commitment varies

PM Essence Sehwag on Strategy                                    -    Pavan Soni   PM in Non Traditional Area   Now, wait a minute - did you read it right? Yes, it's not an oxymoron. I mean it. Of course Virender Sehwag (aka Viru) won't bother to write about strategy, let alone reading even one para written on the topic. Most people won't even remotely associate Viru with strategy when the media and our imagination is replete with leaders, captains, coaches, and pundits on who ought to make strategy and how it must be made (only that it makes sense at the hindsight)....
